webring ideas - The WWW

Quoting parts of wikipedia for context:
Quote:A webring (or web ring) is a collection of websites linked together in a circular structure, and usually organized around a specific theme, often educational or social.[1] They were popular in the 1990s and early 2000s, particularly among amateur websites.

With that in mind, considering that webrings at this age are more or less dead, and there was one guy who went to make one for ActivityPub users. I thought of something different on a XMPP room of mine after reading a post from Russ Cox that z3bra posted in #nixers.

Quote:webring idea: everyone uses qrcodes made with the above and we don't even need link to each other, only the codes have to be shared

And I began doing that using the WebAssembly qart generator for three of my sites.

I'm not sure to get your point ? Do you just replace next/prev links with QR codes ?

the linking if anything is completely optional, but yes, you'd have a QR gallery with unique art to identify the site somewhat
of course, in case scanning the code does not work, anchor links are perfectly fine i.e.
<a href="your-domain"><img src="your-qr-code.png"></a>
Another example, this one for the forum

(fallback) link would be
<a href="https://nixers.net"><img src="https://up.qw.is/f/354163967.png"></a>
